Reality Show Participants We Hate

I hate her, too, and hate that she's one of the select club of million dollar "Survivor" winners. In fact, even though I also can't stand Randy, the misanthropic, nasty piece of work who made me cringe through his own season, I was disappointed that the Villains tribe voted him out instead of the ripe-for-picking Parvati.
Speaking of Survivor hate, I absolutely couldn't stand Jenna and her buddy Heidi, on the Amazon season. Heidi especially; the girl looked like a huge praying mantis, or alien of some sort (large head, but eyes, etc., but huge fake boobs, of course), but then went around saying that the older women were just jealous because they were so 'hot'. Gag! And then she and Jenna both took off their tops for a food challenge, when it wasn't even necessary. My hatred of them knows no bounds.
Then again, maybe I'm just bitter because I loved Rob C (from New York, not "Boston Rob"), and was sorry he didn't win.

She is a horrid bitch, though, and it pissed me off that she was forever saying Kelly needed to go because she'd get pity from everyone. What the fucking fuck? Kelly was a stronger competitor than most of the people with both of their original legs, so getting rid of her at some point would have made sense, but seriously? She thinks she's a threat because she'd get the pity vote from the jury? Besides being poor game strategy (when there are two tribes, you want yours to NOT SUCK), it's just gross. Besides all that, Kelly isn't the first Survivor with an artificial leg. Chad (I think that was his name?) was never pitied or treated differently by his tribemates, so I assume these assumptions are coming from her own prejudices.
So, yeah, I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with not liking someone with one leg. But when you hate someone because they have a prosthetic leg, well, that's pretty fucking shitty.

I get the Naonka hate, but it always weirds me out a little that people are like "And she's mean to the girl with one leg!" How many legs you have doesn't have much to do with how nice of a person you are. (Of course, Kelly did seem pretty cool, so it's kind of moot, but still.)
I hate her because she's a fucking thief, and because she couldn't do her talking head interviews without insinuating physical violence, or throwing Kelly's leg into the sea. With all of that going on, she walked out with her tail tucked between her legs.

As you can probably tell, I'm really getting annoyed here.

Rob: I don't like him, because I feel he's overrated, and he had overstayed his welcome. But compared to a real stinker like Wee Russell, he's a saint. And I only hoped for an exhausted Rob to fall down the steps because it would have made the story deviate from the path that was carved by the sheer stupidity of the other castaways.
Phillip: I think he should get more pity than hate. The man is a lunatic, straight-up. I still can't believe he acted like an asshole at guaranteed himself an $85,000 payday . . . and thanks to getting one more vote than Natalie, he wound up "earning" more than $2,500 per day in the game driving everybody up a wall . . . all because Rob wanted to ride him to victory.
Natalie: who? Seriously, aside from her not being a teenager when the show launched, do you guys know anything about her?
Russell: he got broken like fine china. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
For pure hatred, I think Adam from the latest season of The Real World takes the cake. He got drunk, wrecked shit, stirred shit up, and fooled one of the girls (Naomi? Nany?) into thinking he had something deep within him. He didn't . . . and thanks to being an asshole, he got an invite to the next Challenge.

Howie, a 'radio personality' who cheerfully admitted in talking heads - as well as to some of his competitors - that he wasn't a particularly accomplished cook, but saw the show as a ticket to making the move to tv, was eliminated in the first episode. However, before that happy moment, he contributed to the collapse of his team by a) his own incompetence (making gnocchi that was derided by every judge as gluey, icky and just plain bad), b) needing - in some cases demanding - so much help from his teammates that Jyll, who admitted later that she had made a mistake by helping him to that extent, was unable to plate her own dish c) was part of the chain of events that led to a third teammate, Vic, losing most of his food in a collision. Now, some of this was Jyll's fault (she admitted it), and some of it was at least partly happenstance (the collision). But when Jyll told Howie before they went before the judges that she felt she had helped him too much, he mocked her contention, saying that she 'hadn't done that much' for him. He repeated this before the judges, who ended up deciding that, whoever had done whatever, the bad gnocchi were reason enough to get rid of him Yay!
Sadly, Penny is still there. Poisonous Penny. A self proclaimed sex goddess of the kitchen, Penny is actually a hard-as-nails competitor who seems less sensual than soiled, and better suited for the stiletto knife than the 'stilettos in the kitchen' gimmick with which she started. She has since changed that to "Middle Eastern Mom" due to Susie Fogelson's happy reaction to Penny's mention of cooking for her daughters after her divorce. This had the happy effect of getting Penny to remove half her makeup and much of her 'sexy' mummery on camera (It was pretty gross). What hasn't changed is Penny's 'gameplay' - targeting competitors for elimination, either because she dislikes them (Alicia, who made the mistake of being a willowy blonde former model), is threatened by them (Orchid, who has gained praise from the judges for her warmth and good cooking) or is in a position where she needs someone nearby she's sure she can beat (Katie). Ironically, most of this would seem unnecessary, since she actually cooks pretty well, and has a culinary point of view (middle eastern) that I, at least, find fascinating. Penny's most recent antics include scrounging through a trash can - on camera - to demonstrate how terrible her competition's cupcakes were, and making gagging noises and gestures - again, on camera. Stay classy, Penny.
Then there's Max, an eighteen year old college student who talks about his 'privileged' background and fine palate whenever the opportunity presents itself - and the producers make sure it presents itself pretty constantly. Max's snootiness and self-involvement could be dismissed as immaturity - and there's something to be said in favor of a young man who really wants to do something that's his, rather than just join Mom or Dad's company or enjoy his trust fund, plus he does seem able to cook really well. But his focused nastiness towards a number of competitors is off-putting, and when he derided a cafeteria challenge as 'low quality' and later jeopardized his team's efforts by putting raw, assembled burgers on a dirty tray that had held cookies with nuts, and defended himself saying "It's just cafeteria food... it's not as if it was fine dining..." I don't care how good his cooking is, I don't want him to win this thing.

But then I laughed when he mispronounced the French name for the sauce he was making.

She's not that smart, though, flying her Bitch flag so proudly. This isn't Top Chef - she's trying to get hired here. Would the NFNS network execs really want to work with someone who is so toxic (and proud of it)? Not the best strategy in my opinion.
I'm with you on the Penny train. Hope she goes soon! I would never watch a show she hosted anyway. I find her very crass and cheap looking.

I hate Phi Phi O'hara (Jaremi Carey) from Rupaul's Drag Race. She screams at anyone who dares to tell her she's doing something she shouldn't, she plots against her fellow competitors, except for the fact that the editors regularly frame her statements that "_______ has no talent" with "______is the winner!", followed by her pouting. That makes it all bearable.
Tonight sort of sealed it for me, when she not only screamed down the rest of the remaining cast, but screamed down RuPaul (via two-way TV screen). She's just hateful, spiteful, and a vile human being.
